Ooooh, Bleak House is one of those I always thought I *should* read, but given it's length and the fact that my period of study is about 250 years earlier, I haven't gotten around to it. I've enjoyed the Dickens that I have read though.

Maybe I'll have to rotate this one up a bit in my TBR pile.

Also, have you seen the ep of You Have Been Watching where David Mitchell and Charlie Brooker do imitations of Dickens? Highly recommend.

Oooh, rotate! I haven't enjoyed any other Dickens this much; I'm either chuckling or suppressing a sob at every other chapter. It's pure story :)

I will rotate! Yes ma'am!

In the meantime, the relevant bit starts at 2 min in, but honestly, the whole first half of the episode is worth watching because David Mitchell is on FIRE! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2d6fDjSuMs&feature=related

That's so random! I clicked on it on the email for your last comment and it took me there. WEIRD. I'm sorry

LOL, np, it just sends me to a 'catch up on your latest tellybox' page, with no You Have Been Watching episode listed. Perhaps you were logged in or somesuch tricky device?
